Description
Şenay Özden, an anthropologist who works with long-suffering Syrian asylum seekers, says that there is no distinction in terms of political opinion and citizenship and says, "There are also people wanted from my Syrian friends and the idea is not close to AKP."

Özden identifies that the asylum seekers of whom he works with are largely middle class, university graduates that are multilingual, liberal, secular people. Because of this, some have faced discrimination and racist approaches from conservative Turks.
